Impatience! ARRRGH!

So I’m working on this career site for some stupid client that’s due today. Then I get asked if I’ve finished one that’s due Tuesday. …so (as I had planned to do anyway) I go and do that after I finish the one due today. As I’m about to finish that, I get asked why […]

White noise

This white noise being piped through the office is making me insane. It’s a constant hissing from hundreds of speakers on the ceiling. Imagine that there were hundreds of TVs tuned to static with the volume set low. That’s what this office sounds like. …and someone thought this was a good idea? It’s not so […]

He was in TV ads for UMass after he went back to finish his degree there. …and it took the press this long to realize that he earned his undergrad degree after this fake MBA?

Monster v10.0 (or so…)

A new design for Monster launches tomorrow. Coding for it has occupied most of my time this week. …and as a representative of the company, I’d like to apologize for it sucking. I can’t imagine they’ll keep this design for more than 6 months before they get sick of it and realize it’s just not […]

Imagine Whirled Peas

I went to another cousins’ dinner tonight at Elly’s. Tonight’s adventure was split pea soup. Ugh. I hate peas. Oh well, it actually wasn’t too bad. Better than fish. Pretty busy at work this week with the new version of the site in progress. I’m being quite productive. Wheee! Of course, the more I look […]

Right to the top

So I’ve mentioned how the new Monster home page has a big “success story” photo and a silly quote. Well, Pete and I decided to have a little fun. He edited a screenshot of the page to say, “I got laid!” instead of “I got laid off…”. I decided to one-up him by sticking a […]
